Memo 204: Picked from the Deck and Drew a Blank

To: All
From: Me
Date: October 21, 2015
Subject: Nothing to Wear, No Problem
__________________________________________________________________________________

Sometimes, I draw an utter, complete  and absolute clothing blank. Like, I'm looking into a sea of clothing but nothing. I hate saying I have nothing to wear because there are three closets full of things that would say otherwise but sometimes, literally, nothing. Not one thing. 


Instead of just sitting on the floor in the middle of a tantrum wasting precious pre-event preparation time, I either resort to something that I've already worn or I go for a monochromatic look. On this day, I settled for the latter. Can we say black like I never left?

Phew, that was a close call. I almost didn't go...

Memo 203: The (Global) Grind Is Sold Separately

To: All
From: Me
Date: October 8, 2015
Subject: BTS Photos of the Global Grind Interview
__________________________________________________________________________________

It costs you nothing to dream but it may cost you almost everything to pursue it. At some point, you will have to make the decision on how you're going to proceed with your life. Will you be just a dreamer or will you be a dream chaser? Choose wisely.

And while you're choosing, you may as well do it wearing a gold cape! I mean if you're going to go out into the world and be amazing, you may as well dress the part! When I showed up for this Global Grind Interview, the Senior Marketing Director of Interactive One made the comment that I showed up looking like a Super Woman. Well, I mean, dress for the job you want or nah?

Check out the full Global Grind interview here or on my You Tube Channel here.

Memo 202: Is Brooklyn in the House?

To: All
From: Me
Date: October 8, 2015
Subject: NYFW: Look 7
__________________________________________________________________________________

I was on a legit search for Biggie in New York. Last year, outside of Hennypalooza, there was a huge street art mural of Biggie and I was on a mission to find it again. I was unsuccessful but a little birdie put me on to the Bushwick Street Art Collective and there he was. I told him that I lost him before but wouldn't let it happen again and pleaded with him "Biggie biggie, give me one more chance."

How do you make sequin pants dressy and casual at the same time? Throw on some brightly colored sneakers and a tuxedo jacket and there you have comfy chic.
